Read today’s dose of chic intel right here…

1980s male model Nick Kamen has died aged 59

Tributes have poured in for Nick Kamen, the British model who found fame in an iconic 1980s Levi’s ad before becoming a pop star. Kamen, real name Ivor Neville Kamen, passed away on Tuesday after a long illness. Among those who made tributes were his friend Boy George, Duran Duran’s John Taylor, and singer Tanita. The Levi’s 501 ad that launched the Essex-born heartthrob to international fame showed him stripping down in a laundromat while Marvin Gaye’s Heard It Through The Grapevine was voted as one of the most memorable ads of the era. Kamen later sang with Madonna on hit Each Time You Break My Heart, before pursuing his own successful music career. As actor Matt Lucas tweeted in memory of him, “If you didn’t have a crush on Nick Kamen in the 80s, you probably weren’t there. RIP.”
